We are developing lead-free piezoelectric materials through a joint development programme with CeramTec. We are also developing phase change memory materials for high capacity memory chips and expect to partner with a major electronics manufacturer to commercialise these materials.

We cover a wide range of different market applications within the electronics sector to help customers advance their materials discovery programmes. The high throughput approach to materials synthesis coupled with high throughput characterisation and screening means that Ilika can optimise materials with respect to a desired property in a much shorter timeframe. For phase change memory applications, for example, we can monitor the phase change behaviour of different alloys as a function of temperature. The optical and electrical behaviours of interesting compositions can then be studied in more detail.
